Meghan Markle dad news update: to undergo surgery – won’t attend wedding | Life | Life & Style


Thomas Markle has now told website TMZ that he will not attend the wedding of his daughter Meghan Markle as he is due to have surgey.

The 73-year-old will go into surgery on Wednesday at 7:30 am local time.

He told TMZ: “They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed.”

Meghan’s father had a heart attack in the past week, leaving him unsure about whether he would attend.

Meghan Markle, 36, will walk down the aisle to marry Prince Harry, 33, on Saturday.

He told TMZ yesterday evening that he had suffered from a heart attack and would not attend the wedding to avoid “embarrassing” his daughter.

However, now the former cinematographer who lives in Mexico has told the news outlet he still wants to walk Meghan down the aisle.

He also revealed the actress attempted to call him and text him telling him she loves him and is concerned about his health.

Thomas also said of the British monarch: “I don’t think the Queen is thinking about what I’m doing.”

“I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle.”

Now he claims if medics allow him to leave the hospital he will fly to the UK and attend the wedding, risking his health.

He added: “Of course I’d walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I’d like to be a part of history.”

After the news of Thomas Markle’s heart attack yesterday Meghan Markle and Prince Harry issued a statement via Kensington Palace. 

They said: “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding.

“She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.”

It was only revealed that Meghan father would attend the wedding earlier this month.

Kensington Palace said on May 4: “Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day.

“Both of the bride’s parents will have important roles in the wedding.

“On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle.

“Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George’s Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion.”

It was thought that Meghan Markle’s mother could walk her down the aisle if her father did not attend.

Royal historian Victoria Howard told Good Morning Britain viewers: “I think it would be a lovely touch for Meghan’s mother Doria to walk her down the aisle.

“It wouldn’t be an unprecedented move. Queen Victoria walked two of her daughters down the aisle.”
